Chilled cucumber and avocado soup

I first tried avocado soup when I was travelling through Mexico and was amazed at how tasty it was considering the few raw ingredients. This is my own take on the recipe, with hydrating cucumber and mint. The great thing about this soup is that it can be prepared in a food processor or blender in 2 minutes flat - it's brilliant for … Continue reading Chilled cucumber and avocado soup

Sweet Potato and Salmon Fishcakes

These fishcakes came to life when I had just three things in the fridge - salmon, sweet potatoes and spinach! They're a great source of slow-release carbs, filling protein and anti-inflammatory omega 3 oils from the fish.

Served with eggs for breakfast, avocado at lunch and rice or tortillas at dinner, a saucepan of black beans can last for several days, becoming the basis for many different meals - soups, stews, chilli, and … Continue reading Black Bean Soup

If you've ever taken a look at my Instagram account, you'll know I have a bit of a thing for frittata, particularly on a Friday when the fridge is close to getting empty. Frittata is a one pan meal that is simple to prepare, tastes great, looks beautiful and works with just about any cheese and vegetables … Continue reading Green Vegetable Frittata

Shakshuka eggs

As January rolls around there's a general feeling of a) needing to save some money and b) tidy up eating habits. Rather than commit to some sort of fad diet, make a resolution to get in the kitchen and try cooking a new healthy recipe at least once a week. One of my favourite superfast … Continue reading Shakshuka eggs
